There's quite a bit to like about Queen & Slim, particularly as it pertains to the relationship between the two. Daniel Kaluuya & Jodie Turner-Smith have strong chemistry. Kaluuya really shines in moments where Slim is racked with guilt. There's an exchange between them late in the film that destroyed me a bit. The script leaves a bit to be […]

Richard Jewell is a serviceable enough award […]
